erfinv

inverse error function

Calling Sequence

y = erfinv(x)

Arguments

x

real vector or matrix

y

real vector or matrix (same size as x)

Description

The erfinv function computes the inverse of the erf error function. Thus, erf(erfinv(x)) = x for all x such that -1 ≤ x ≤ 1.

Examples

x = linspace(-0.99, 0.99, 100);
y = erfinv(x);
plot2d(x, y)
